How to Make a Bunny Cake
Gather up the kids to help you make a bunny cake the whole family will love.
With the kids home for spring break this week, you may need something to help keep them occupied. There are only so many Easter eggs you can color, so you may enjoy making this Easter Bunny cake.
It’s easy and very satisfying once you’ve created the little fellow. It's so adorable, it’s hard to cut it up!
What you’ll need to make two bunnies:
1 box of yellow cake mix (water, eggs, oil)
1 container of white frosting
2 cups of shredded coconut
Green food coloring
Colored construction paper
Heat oven to 350 degrees (325 for dark pans). Bake and cool cake as directed on the box for two 9-inch round pans.
Using one of the cake layers, cut in half down center of cake. Put the halves together with frosting, flat side down, to form the body of the bunny.
Cut out a notch about 1/3 of the way up one end of the body in the front to form a small head. Use one half of the notched out piece of cake to make the bunny’s tail. Attach with frosting.
Frost the rest of the cake, rounding out the body on the sides. Sprinkle with one cup of coconut, to make the cake look like it has fur. Cut ears from construction paper, and press into the notched out area on top of the bunny’s head. Use jelly beans for eyes and nose.
Mix 1 cup of coconut, with 3 drops of food color in a bowl until evenly tinted. Surround bunny with coconut “grass.” Garnish with additional jelly beans and enjoy!
